Textbook Collection

Wed, 01/06/2021 - 2:41pm

Greetings from the Ridge;

Happy New Year.

We hope that you have enjoyed some downtime during winter break. We are getting prepared for the second semester courses. With that, we will be collecting textbooks on Monday, January 11th and Tuesday, January 12th from 3:30 PM to 6:00 PM in the bus loop. We will reorganize after that to get the books ready for our students for the second semester.

Our redistribution will be on Wednesday, January 27th so that your students have their books prior to the start of second semester. More information will be coming out about that. Below are the details about our 2-day book collection. If you have any questions, please reach out to Lori_A_Miller@hcpss.org to work out any issues that you have with the collection dates and times.

Thanks, Tammy Goldeisen



January 11 & January 12, 2021 – 3:30-6:00 pm
Book cart drop off January 11-15,2021 -  7:30am-3:30pm

This message is for ALL students who have school-issued textbooks that need to be returned for use during the second semester.  Before we can issue calculators, instruments and textbooks for the second semester, we need to collect all items students are holding from semester 1.   

It is important to read this communication so you fully understand how you can help with this process.  Below is our drop-off schedule and detailed procedures.

During the drop-off process, it is critical that students and families maintain all social distancing practices, wear masks and remain in your cars.   

Students who are in possession of school-issued materials such as textbooks, media books, calculators (if you do not need for this semester) or other materials and supplies belonging to MRHS/HCPSS are asked to return these items. 

If you are CONTINUING in band or orchestra and have an instrument, please keep it. If you were issued a Chromebook, please keep it. If you are no longer playing an instrument, please return these items.                      

  • Place all materials to be returned to MRHS in any type of bag or box labeled with your first and last name. Please do not tie, staple, or seal the bag. (The bag/box will not be returned to you.) Include a Textbook Collection Materials Form in the bag. This form can be printed and completed, or you can simply write the information on a sheet of paper.

  • Please check under beds, in cars, backpacks, anywhere school materials could be buried.  If you find library books, older textbooks from siblings, etc. please return these as well.  You can return anything -- no questions asked.

  • ARL STUDENTS:  If you have any ARL textbooks or materials from last semester that need to be returned to the ARL, you may drop off the materials at Marriotts Ridge. Please place your books and materials in a bag clearly marked “RETURN TO ARL” along with your Name and Academy’s Name on the front of the bag.  

Driving Directions for Drop Off

Students and families will access the front parking lot entrance from Woodford Dr. (the front entrance, not the one by the auditorium).  You will be stopping near the cafeteria to drop off your items.  Look for a staff member to direct you.  During the drop-off process, it is critical that students and families maintain all social distancing practices, wear masks, and remain in your cars.


As you approach the school, please have the following ready:

All textbooks and materials to be returned to MRHS in a plastic/shopping/grocery bag or box, labeled with your first and last name.  (The bag/box will not be returned to you.)  Place the completed Textbook Collection Materials Form (or write the information on a piece of paper) in the bag/box.

If you have materials from the ARL, we can collect these as well. Please make sure the items for the ARL are clearly labeled.

Monday, January 11, 2021
3:30-4:45pm- Grade 9
4:45 -6:00pm- Grade 10
Tuesday, January 12, 2021
3:30-4:45pm – Grade 11
4:45-6:00pm – Grade 12

If you have more than one student in your family returning books, please just choose one time to return all items for your family. 

There will also be a cart set up at the front entrance of the school from 7:30-3:30 daily from Monday, January 11 through Friday, January 15. 

Books and materials can be dropped off by a family member, friend, or neighbor. 

Please make every effort to return books within these time frames.  We need time to reorganize and redistribute books for the beginning of the second semester. 

If you have any questions, or cannot drop-off items during these days/times, please email Principal’s Secretary, Lori Miller, lori_a_miller@hcpss.org to arrange an alternate drop-off date.
